It was a beautiful morning that offered more of the corn goodness for the morning session.  Though there were predictions of afternoon storms, only a few meandering cloud decks moved over the front.  With the continued warm temps the quality was not going to last long, and getting to the smooth lines was worth an early start.   Here is a shot of the first Rasta Chute looking fully filled with only minimal static that moved easily when things got soft.DSC02866  The High North aspects are the last bastion of consistency as these days warm up.  The coverage remains good on the upper elevations, but the lower exit road is even more melted off.  Tomorrow, look for another similar day as the weather activity seems to be spotty.  I will be there first thing to get the cornuroy lines that have been so good in the past few days.  Off trail is getting better as the pack morphs and becomes a bit smoother.  I had fun doing some far off the beaten path lines that I had been avoiding for some time.  Tomorrow will be the last day for Mineral Basin, so I am going for focus the attention there until it gets too soft.  The front of the hill will have to wait.  Peace Out!!
